Hydlar® combines the properties of nylon with the wear resistance of Kevlar® Aramid fiber. The composite material is strong, tough and resists wear—up to 20 times greater than nylon alone. The Kevlar® also eliminates galling of mating surfaces and provides excellent flexural and tensile strength. Hydlar® outperforms metals, glass or other reinforced plastics. The properties of Hydlar® make it ideal for pulleys, bearings, casters, rollers, high-strength wheels, and aerospace and automotive applications.
